    G.I. JOE / G.I. Snore

    Mess. It was super cheesy and frankly you just really didn't give a crap about the characters. They had a million flashbacks to millions of the characters to try and explain why they became what they became. The birth of "Cobra" attempted to be epic but it was a miserable fail. The whole movie is like an episode of "24" (I like that show) in the way that the entire episode/movie only builds to leave you guessing for the next installment. Holes and unanswered questions. It was a crossover movie full of cameos by the cast of The Mummy movies. There was no emotional rollercoaster, very little laughs, and cheap thrills. Horrible foundation of a story to try and carry all the nonsense CGI. I fail to see how it deemed itself "the number 1 movie IN THE WORLD"
    Budget: $170 million

    District 9

    I definitely enjoyed it. I had no idea what to expect and was gladly surprised with what was delivered. Proves that Hollywood needs to stop with the mentality that super CGI crammed films equal good movies. I was getting a little emotional even, thanks to some of the musical score. They were able to deliver a sampling of emotions. It was a much more engaging story.
    I love small detail such as the subtle visual language created with the design of some the white MNU trucks, being an abstracted form of the alien faces. Stimulating movie. Budget: $30 million. The artists (CGI, props, concept, pyro) produced way better looking army/alien technology and visuals.

    Thanks for letting me know. I could tell it was going to be crap by the cast and the commercials so when me and my bf went to the movies last monday we went to go see 500 days of summer.

    Which was a really funny movie, but often times crossed the lines to become a little bit too emotionally taxing.

    G.I. Joe: I totally agree with you. It was just action and no real plot. The actors aren't that good (Channing Tatum is just eye candy), and it was just an EPIC failure.

    Orphan: I didn't like it. It wasn't horror. It wasn't even a thriller. All it showed was a psychotic midget.


    ugh

    I liked "I love you man" but did you ever feel as if it had gay undertones?

    (500) Days of Summer. REALLY great indie movie starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel. Can't say enough good things about this. It's anti-romantic-comedy comedy. The acting is ernest. The soundtrack is perfect. You really should go see this movie.

    Seeing District 9 tomorrow.

    I watched The Man From Earth through online Netflix or you can rent the DVD. I would describe it as an indie low budget movie, but the writing and premise makes it worth the watch. It's about a man that has lived for thousands of years and is trying to pass just as a normal human.

    District 9.

    It was pretty original, and the story was well written. It was never slow, and was often pretty intense in building up the tension beforehand...I'm going to see it again with some friends tonight icon_biggrin.gif

    I just watched "I Love You, Man." I enjoyed it. But I would watch Paul Rudd in anything.

    Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. It may require a 2nd look but it was diapoointing to me and lacked uniqueness that the others have.

    Neill Blomkamp brings to screens a fantastic, gritty, realistic piece of science fiction with District 9. It will be clear why Peter Jackson put so much faith in Blomkamp.

    Duplicity (Julia Roberts and Clive Owen) was showing on the plane ride back home. First airplane movie I had any interest in watching. Glad I did as the chemistry between the two was quite good and the plot was mostly good too. The only bummer was that the last few minutes of the flick were cut off since we were about to land. Talk about a lot of groaning from the passengers! Now I'll have to rent the movie to learn the last of the plot details.

    Couldn't agree with you more! One of the best, most pleasant film-going experiences I've had all year. Even during the sad parts, I was smiling. And I think I have a little crush on Joseph Gordon-Levitt now. He has such a good smile, and those sweater vests...very fun to look at. A must see.

    And you're also right about the soundtrack. The Hall and Oates dance number was worth the price of admission alone.

    I saw the Ugly Truth yesterday night. I thought it was pretty hilarious. Very easy going and funny. Katherine Heigl is a win in my book.

    Maybe they'll make one about two guys as a sequel. icon_biggrin.gif
